Download (formerly Friday Night Download) is an Australian TV show hosted by Friday Night Games hosts Mike Goldman, Ryan Fitzgerald and Bree Amer. The show first aired on 26 October 2007. A second series began on 17 October 2008,[1] but the show was pulled from schedules only two episodes into its run.[2]


The Sydney Morning Herald TV critic noted that the videos shown on the show could be viewed as easily on the internet without advertisement breaks, and as such claimed it should be "hosed off the pavement forthwith".[3]

The show only averaged 700,000 viewers on its premiere night and was beaten by the Seven Network's Better Homes and Gardens.[citation needed] Although rating good enough for Ten to retain the show for their 2008 lineup,[4] the show was axed when it slumped to 526,000 viewers in its last aired episode.[2]
